limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our children and grandchildren, therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. in 2008, candidate obama blamed president bush and called the growing debt unpatriotic. >> number 43 added 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome so that we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child, that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> mike: unpatriotic. 9 trillion dollars in debt 2008. we're 16 1/2 trillion dollars in debt today. all right. joining me now, former house speaker newt gingrich. mr. speaker, great having you with me tonight. [applause] >> good to be with you, governor. i must say that was a terrific lead-in and one i kind of wish the
of an internet activist finds his family crying foul. was aaron schwartz a victim of government intimidation and a run away prosecutor. >> while there's no law or set of laws that can prevent every sinceless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent he every tragedy, every act of evil, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try it. >> paul: welcome to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot, that was president obama rolling out the plan to curb gun violence and the president outlined 23 executive actions, including more steps to make more federal data available from background checks and increased access to mental health services and he called on congress to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban and prohibit high capacity gun magazines that can hold more than ten rounds. so, what's likely to get passed and what difference will it make? let's ask wall street journal columnist and political he editor and washington columnist kim strassel. >> has a hypothetical,
. >> the american government now warning of more kidnapping threats on westerners and conor powell has our coverage from the middle east bureau in jerusalem. what is the latest today? >> the fighting may be over but there is a lot of question hes and concerns and also confusion about what exactly happened and what is going on and who is alive and who is dead. now, according to algerian officials they are in the bp gas plant and searching for are mines and booby traps that they believe have been laid by the islamic militants. they also are finding bodies, dozens of bodies. according to an algerian television station they are finding dozens of bodies but they are so badly damaged they can't tell if they are members of the terrorist cell that took over the facility or if they are foreign hostages. the algerian government is saying that all 32 militants were killed on the final raid by algerian forces but they also say the death toll s at 23. it could be 25. and it likely will increase over the next couple days as they begin to figure out who was killed and who was not. now, also the details are very,
government not to take actions that could jeopardize those still being held but the algerians have a long history with jihadist and they have shown they won't let hostage takers get out alive. >> we'll head back for breaking details. thank you. >> turning to the u.s. economy. consumer sentiment at the lowest sentiment for more than a year. reuters survey showed 35% of consumers have a negative reaction to fiscal cliff negotiations. the dow finished up 54. the s&p 500 gained five. the nort nasdaq lost one. there is word tonight that republicans may be willing to give a little now to get something back later. we are talking about the debt ceiling. versus spending cuts. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel reports on the house g.o.p. winter retreat in virginia. >> at the house g.o.p. retreat in williamsberg, virginia, the leaders decided they will pass three-month temporary increase to give them time to finalize a budget. speaker boehner said before there is long-term debt limit increase a budget should be passed that cut spending. the house g.o.p. whip hinted at the strategy. >> o
that we've had is that the western government that had citizens in algeria, they weren't given much information on what was going on the ground. many countries weren't given a heads-up that a raid was being launched. this type of information we're getting right now really is not helping the families who don't know about their loved ones. over the course of next 48 hours we hope it will get better but it appears algeria isn't prepared or able to provide the type of information that loved ones and western governments really need to sort this out. >> gregg: coner, thanks very much. >> heather: next-door in mali go a setback to terrorists linked to al-qaeda now retreating after days of french air strikes. the military in mali says they are complete control there. streets reportedly a landscape of burned out vehicles and destroyed weapons. a spokesman for the french forces is sounding a more cautious note saying it's not clear all the militants have left. french forces are moving northward into rebel held territory. >> gregg: more turmoil in the region. new violence erupting in egypt. pr
wants results and they want results in their jobs, in their lives. they want the government just to work better. and i think that is the big disconnect right now with washington because, you know, republicans are wondering how much leverage they have to force the president to deal with spending, for instance. do they sort of wait him out and hope for a positive result in 2014 and use whatever leverage over the del ceiling or whatever else but the public finds it so distasteful. the president too on issues like entitlement, i think it's really striking, will he seek to rise above how difficult it is that he doesn't feel he's got a negotiating partner to try to get something done on entitlements? if he wants robust economic growth he'll have to. we will have a debate over guns and the debt between ted cruz, fresh face, tea party face from texas. >> old school/new school. >> and chuck schumer from new york and our political roundtable as well where we'll look at the big challenges. >> in urban america is one place on guns and rural america and the south another. >> see you sunday. >> thanks
yesterday with one reference to the deficit. if no debt limit is reached, however, the government could default on its obligations within weeks so watch that story. martha: well, this is an interesting one. pro golfer, phil mickelson, doing a little bit of backpedaling today saying he regrets the public comments he made on the issue of his taxes in california. mickelson said he may move out when he made the original comments, of the state, because all taxes combined end up to more than 60% tax rate. now he is telling fox news contributor jim gray, quote, finances and taxes are a personal matter and i should not have made a opinions of, on them public. i apologize to those who i have upset or insulted and i assure you i intend not to let it happen again. why would he feel the need to do that? stuart varney, joins me, anchor of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, this is an interesting one. >> it really is. the left beat up on phil mickelson big-time because he complained about all the tax money he has now got to pay. specifically you had, basically the left is saying
in on the debt ceiling themselves, believing a fight over funding the government is a much better political fight for their party. here's congresswoman marsha blackburn yesterday. >> i think there is a way to avoid default. if it requires shutting down certain portions of the government, let's look at that. >> yesterday the president sounded almost resign to the idea a government shutdown is probably coming up. >> if the republicans in congress made a decision they want to shouldn't down the government in order to get their way, then they have the -- votes at least in the house of representatives probably to do that. i think that would be a mistake. and it would be profoundly damaging to our economy. >> once again, what the white house was trying to signal on debt limit in government shutdown is this. they are not going the try to help republicans find a way out of it. they have to own debt limit and republican leaders know they need to move off of debt limit. they are trying to find a way out of it. the white house was also saying, hey, we know will is a negotiating -- debate and fight coming on
the way it began. randy weaver, his three children, and the man the government reluctantly accepted as its negotiator walked out of a mountaintop cabin late this afternoon hand in hand. >> he didn't come out. we went in. and we hugged each other. and we kissed the girls and hugged them. and it's a very emotional thing. >> it was 11 days ago when the siege in northern i'd began. weaver, his wife, three kids, and a friend were found hiding in a remote cabin not far from the canadian border. weaver was wanted on charges of selling sawed-off shotguns. there was a shootout, and a federal marshal was killed. the next day weaver's wife was killed. a son killed. and a friend wounded. northern idaho is a hotbed for anti-government sentiment. and as the siege dragged on a vigil of angry supporters watched the authorities' every move. >> so bo gritz, presidential candidate that year, ended up playing this key role in ending this horrible standoff. but the standoff, it lasted for 11 days, and it did become a cause celebre for a very angry portion of the very far right anti-government fringe in this co
of our constitution framed our government in 18 pages. there should be symposiums to help the reporters to do a more responsible job of covering healthcare. frankly they were somewhat come police it in the public getting bamboozled. >> neil: here is what is scary. here is what should be pushing and you should be saying. you missing the good in this. maybe other things that i am not aware of, but my point is that is a little weird? >> yes, bu where is the reporters when it comes to looking at the facts. remember the president saying skyrocketing health spending. that was the word the white house used every single day. they were on message, skyrocketing healthcare costs. the president told us domestic crisis of our time. we have to pass the affordable care act because the burden on families in the nation is so great. in fact healthcare spending was increase more slowly in 2009, 2010, 2011 than at any time at any time in 9 last half century. anesthesia reversing drugs but the fact is now that the government says wait until you see the skyrocketing health care under obamacare. >> neil: agai
that the government should not intrude on private family matters and women should be free to make their own choices about their bodies and healthcare. >> bret: thank you. what are your thoughts on roe v. wade anniversary? let me know on twitter. follow me. @bretbaier. deep freeze hit the midwest. waves of arctic air sweeping the region, causing schools to shut down. frigid temperatures expected to play a role in three deaths so far. some of the oldest areas registered get this, 36-degrees below zero. politics was everywhere during the inauguration. even in the music. we'll explain. even ragu users chose prego. prego?! but i've been buying ragu for years. [ thinking ] i wonderhat other questionable choices i've made? [ club scene music ] [ sigh of relief ] [ male announcer ] choose taste. choose prego. [ sigh of relief ] excuse me, sir i'm gonna have to ask you to power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane? yeah, i can manage my policy, get roadside assistance, pretty much
after benghazi and series of misstep by the american government trying to investigate what happened in benghazi. >> detained by the turkish authorities in october after he was linked to the consulate attack through the social media posting. then lindsey graham intervened as he explained on the program. >> i can only imagine what would have happened if the president of the united states picked the phone an called the prime minister and said this is a priority for our country. >> do you think the administration, the national security effort of the administration is really going after those responsible for the benghazi libya attack? >> they seem to be more focused to get the enside behind them. >> this is the first time they used social media to write about the benghazi suspect. after he was interviewed, they posted pictures purportedly showing the three f.b.i. agents involved. >> it was meant to show they cannot operate with total immunity. >> and second suspect detained by the egyptian authorities, head of the house intelligent committee briefed on the case said the f.b.i. agents are
implementation of obama care next year. which is one of the themes i told you about last week, the government made me do it theme. the staffing companies are in flago right now. and i think they'll stay that way for the rest of the year. i think in part because of the affordable care act. they are ultrasensitive to changes in the labor market. temporary employment is more cyclical than regular labor market. first to be hired when the economy comes back. and coming back is exactly what the economy is doing right now. just today we saw the jobless claims drop to the lowest level in five years. >> house ofre. >> full-time employment up 1.4% in 2012, the total number of temporary employees increased by 6.2%. that rapid growth is expected to continue in 2013. the street is looking for 5% growth in temporary employment this year. however, i think that number could ultimately end up being conservative thanks to the affordable care act. aka obama care. once that goes into affect in 2014, companies that employ more than 50 full-time workers will need to provide employees with expensive health care cov
that the government should take any action necessary as quote, as long as it saves even one life. now, the third, when barack obama read from the letters of children, it reminded me of the 1980's, remember the presidential debate, jimmy carter revealed to us, he had talked to his 12-year-old daughter, amy, about nuclear proliferation. now, children, they do have wonderful virtues, but children's ability to understand the intricacies of things like nuclear proliferation, and in this case, the link between guns and violent crime, it's not high among them. this is a play for our emotions and we need to see that as such and lastly during his speech today the issue of gun control shouldn't be a divisive one. wait a minute, for obama to sermonize about the problems of divisiveness, like john edwards sermonizing to us about the problems of, well, infidelity. plain hypocritical. and former fox advisor contributor, karl rove. >> good to be back. >> sean: first of all, i'm watching obama, you're watching obama. different guy in the second term? >> more confrontational, more aggressive, more focused on the polit
launched this attack with no warning to the u.s. government or any other government, and it does appear that the hostage crisis remains ongoing. algerian tanks surrounded the gas complex deep in the sahara desert and launched a daring rescue attempt. military leaders say they freed dozens of workers being held by al qaeda-linked terrorists, but many hostages were killed during the mission along with their captors. it's not clear what happened to the several americans being held at the plant. a u.s. official says some got out, including mark cobb who hid in a meeting room. irish citizen steven mcfall also escaped. he talked to a tv station during the rescue attempt. >> they say the military are firing all over the top of us. >> mcfall's family in ireland was relieved to find out he was alive. >> i'm just really excited. i can't wait for him to get home. >> the obama administration says it is in contact with algerian authorities but admits it has been difficult getting accurate information. the terrorist group called the masked brigade stormed the compound on wednesd
congress may ban, mr. obama blamed fears of government overreach. >> part of the challenge that weth confront is that even the slightest hint of some sensible, responsible legislation in this area fans this notion that somehow here it comes and that everybody's guns are going to beo taken away. >> reporter: mr. obama said if congress does not act he can achieve some of these goal us there executive order. but, scott, the only area the president talked about that wasso improved tracing at the federal level of guns sold to or stolen by criminals. maj >> pelley: major, thank you, the government could hit itst borrowing limit again as soon as mid-february. earlier, at that white house news conference, the president called on congress to raise the debt ceiling so the country can pay its bills. >> we have to do something sensible and we shouldn't be doing this on a one to three- month time frame. why would we do that? this is the united states ofajor america, major.in we can't manage our affairs in our such a way that we pay our bills and provide certainty in terms of how we pay our bills
, it was very different from the way he, you know, governed for the last four years or attempted to govern. he came at it from sort of a centrist, pragmatist approach, and it didn't work out so well for him a lot of the times. he faced a congress in republican hands for the last two years in the house that did not, you know, accept his agenda or pass it through the way he would like it. so i think he learned from this election, gave him the confidence to say the election delivered a mandate for my vision of government, my vision of politics, one that involves gay rights, immigration, climate change, an issue that he hasn't really spoken of since his attempts to deal with it in 2009, fell short. so this was really a different president coming out, using the election as a turning point for his agenda and really making clear that that cautious pragmatist of the last four years, that often came out, is going to give way to someone who is unabashedly starting negotiations from a more progressive liberal standpoint than he was willing to do in the recent past. >> not surprisingly, there's been some
. sympathy about government employees, all of that stops if there is no deal in place. most market participants, most analysts, economists believe they will come up with something, but it is the deal that is in place that is questionable, whether you're a rating agency, whether you are investor, whether you're somebody will look at the paycheck which most americans this week got a pretty rough, eye-opening look at their check. i guess it was last week, when they saw the big cut in the social security payroll tax. it was a jump. you have less money now. so many things are affected unfortunately. coming into february, here we are again going to be with spending cuts going to kick in officially. all of this will affect unfortunately the markets. it will be a little rough. the economy is fragile. don't get a deal, jenna. you're looking at recession. fitch knows that. investors know that. we're watching it here at fox business. a little rough. jenna: all right. those are the stakes, recession or not. we'll watch this very closely over next couple weeks. cheryl, thank you. >> you bet. jo
captured and now we're getting the official algerian government line from their mouth piece press. and they're tempering it down a bit saying four foreign hostages have been freed, british, irish, french, no americans mentioned and eyewitnesses say, however, there's some hostages, some captors have been killed in all of this. remember, what we have been reporting about is three to seven americans held, for the u.s. involvement, along with the drone, fast deployment special force teams are at ready, they're not in country yet and president obama has been speaking to algerian sources and speaking to the u.k. prime minister cameron as well as the french prime minister hollande and people in washington are asking for clarity, here in london, they are nervous and getting late word from the japanese government that they want a stop to this operation immediately. all of this, a response, according to the militants, that french-led assault in the neighboring mali against rebel militants there, and the french troops are on the ground now, staging an assault now, asking for the u.s. help. the u.s. is
a handgun in your house. the other things, that's subject to government regulation. they overreached. the mothre they overreached, i warned them, i have been a member all my life -- >> that's nice. >> i will do it again. >> willie, what's my biggest fault. >> you love a little too much. >> that is it. >> i love a little too much. i shared some of that love last week. anyw anyway, it is a still not too late. they can come to the table and be part of a comprehensive package. i'm sure joe biden will accept them and joe manchin will accept them and conservatives will accept them to come to the table. i'm sure their membership wants them to do it, not the survivalists or gun manufacturers who have made millions of dollars off the death of 6 and 7 year-olds, the truth. it's not too late. if they keep their feet in cement, they're going to be run over, not by joe biden, but these polls show, by middle america, by gun owners, by people that want to protect their children when they're at school, they want to protect their children at shopping malls, want to protect their children when they're
in their view of the ii amendment. the government is going to come and take away their guns. that is a real palpable fear and that is something that can be addressed by the obama administration. if the president could assure gun owners that they are not going to take away their guns. >> people say it all the time. when the president says that, well, we don't believe that. especially since he has been so demonising for so long. but i still think. i have a number of friends, i have seen them post on facebook. the government will never come and take my guns. the administration will go further to reassure them. for some of them, it may slow down how many weapons they could buy but at the same time they would still have access to firearms for hunting and self defense. the divide between most gun owners and the nra leadership and the more active members of the nra is that something that they believe but only say in the selective environment is they want to have enough fire power to fight police and military forces. >> frank smyth thank you for joining me tonight. some more unmasking of the nr are
people -- the governing bodies of those particular awards and their trusts with regard to what he did or didn't know after he got that call on december 6. >> apparently, he knew it two days before he met him, maybe i am in the minority, but he's only 22. you know, if he knew something about it, that was really stupid. if he got duped, that was pretty stupid. but he is only 22. let him come out, make a statement. get an interview by someone and move o. give him a break. he's just 22. >> reporter: i am right there with you. i have a daughter that's 22 years of age. i understand whatt can happen. anybody in our culture who is successful is what the rest of the country wants to bring down. we live in a world where good is bad and bad is good. i think that manti te'ono, if anything is guilty of naivete. beyond that, it becomes okay, once you did be and you understood what was at stake financially, that's where the question comes into play. it's a little bit like that theory of the last investors into the bernie madoff ponzi scheme. if it was just about embarrass scpment you couldn't go the
cut spending. if that means shut down the government, shut down the government. >> i think in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets
by the minute. the white house now saying it is in constant contact with the algerian government. we're getting brand new video showing groups of hostages finally free what is described as a horrifying ordeal. there are reports of hostages with explosives strapped to their chest as others were executed. the algerian state news agency is reporting that at least 32 hostages remain unaccounted for at that natural gas plant where this all began following a raid by algerian forces. it is unclear at this time how many americans are still held. our defense secretary, leon panetta, addressed the crisis a short time ago. >> terrorists should be on notice that they will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, not in north africa, not anywhere. jenna: the defense secretary speaking in london there. terrorists affiliated with al qaeda are holed up at that gas plant. they have been there now for three days, demanding an end to the anti-terror campaign playing out right now in neighboring mali. that big area of north africa is part of what we're seeing with this rise of al qaeda in that continent. chie
they are vowing to government the protection act. any federal law banning semi automatic handguns or limiting size of magazines, unenforceable in texas. and federal agents who enforce gun laws, would be in violation of texas law, i'm opposed to anything the federal government would do to go back on their sworn obligation to uphold, defend the united states constitution. in wyoming federal law enforcement could be jailed for five years if they enforce gun laws. now, constitutional lawyers will argue that federal law trumps state law, but some lawmakers say there needs to be a showdown and this might be it. we're not just talking about states, but counties are pushing back, lindh county, oregon, tim mueller says he won't enforce federal gun regulation and won't allow the feds to do so in his county. listen. >> making criminals now honest citizens, that's not the path to go. if i could ask anything out of this, just get people talking about it. >> reporter: they're talking all right. in fact, we've got sheriffs in two other states, in kentucky and idaho doing exactly what sheriff mueller is doing, t
secretary is warning lawmakers that the government will exhaust its borrowing limit as soon as one month from today. that is much earlier than expected. the president also sounded a warning. >> we are not a deadbeat nation. america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already wracked up. >> house speaker john boehner has made it clear that he is eager to avoid a first-ever default on u.s. obligations, even if some republicans are not afraid of that idea. >>> secretary of state clinton will testify next wednesday before lawmakers about the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. clinton had been scheduled to testify last month but she suffered a concussion when she fell during an illness. she was later hospitalized with a blood clot in her head. >>> breaking news overnight. a authorities in philadelphia are offering $10,000 for information leading to the safe return of a 5-year-old girl. nalya robertson was last seen yesterday morning. that's when surveillance cameras saw her leaving her school with a woman
. reinvigorating a mature nation means giving government to give people the tools to compete but then opening up a wide field so they do so ruak cowsly creatively. it means spending more here but de regulating more there. it means facing the fact we do have to choose between current benefits to seniors and investments in our future, and that to pretend we don't face that choice as obama did is effectively to sacrifice the future to the past. >> jonathan, first, what do you think of this speech and secondly, what do you think of david's column? >> i thought the president's speech was terrific, a progressive vision for the country. the guy won twice and ran on all the things he talked about yesterday, inclusion, balanced approach to the nation's problems. when it comes to david brooks' column, as mika was reading, i was thinking, how is that different from what the president actually said? i mean, he's talking about how, you know, what he wants to do is what he's been saying all along, a balanced approach. we have to take care of our seniors and take care of the middle class. we have to take care
, prepare for a bond-style showdown as the government barrels towards its borrowing limit. that said, there might exist a solution that would allow congress to do what it does best, which is to say nothing at all, and still save the economy. this do nothing approach was floated by senate minority leader mitch mcconnell in 2011, and president obama gave it a hat tip yesterday. >> they want to put the responsibility on me to raise the debt ceiling, i'm happy to take it. mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, had a proposal like that last year, and i'm happy to accept it. >> how does it work? step one. president asks congress to raise the debt ceiling when it's within $100 billion. step two, the congress rejects that request and sends a joint resolution of disapproval back to the white house. step three, obama vetoes the resolution of disapproval. step four, congress does nothing. as long as the house and senate wait 15 days before addressing the white house veto, then the president gets his original wish and the debt ceiling automatically goes up. in other words, a redo
government, fiscal responsibility, individual sovereignty, a strong national defense, are best for america and ensures our future generations have the opportunities of previous generations. >> greta: let me switch to fitch warning it may downgrade credit, the american credit if we -- if the debt ceiling isn't raised. it's so important t? that we get this debt situation under control, and i think that once again, when you consider what we're doing to our future generations, you know, our children and our grandchildren, currently who have $53,000 debt upon them. we're eroding their possibilities and their opportunities in this great society. so i think we have to have up in washington d.c., the seriousness, to look at the true problem, which is a spending problem. look at mandatory spending programs and we have to stop the exorbitant amount of spending and we have to say, finally, we're going to stop this debt and we're going to get serious, and i think that fitch is very appropriate in saying that if they don't see a curtailing of the spending, that they're going to downgrade us. >> greta:
governments. they want smart, safe, responsible gun legislation. and we can have that. there's a majority support for banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. and as the president said, as the vice president said, rather, if you a high-capacity magazine of ten or more bullets to shoot a deer, you're in the wrong sport. >> sir, one thing that has been interested is to hear the voices when they're coming out of the woodwork about what side they're falling on. governor of new jersey chris christie has had an interesting approach after seeing the nra ad that targeted the president's kids. take a listen. >> to talk about the president's children or any public officer's children who have not by their own choice, but by requirement to have protection and to use that somehow to try to make a political point i think is reprehensible. >> obviously being a lobbying institution trying to make sure that gun manufacturers have the ability to sell whatever kind of guns to the americans that are able to buy them. and in all of this, mayor, the conversation to the second amendment certainly co
by the government to gain sympathy for gun laws. in this atmosphere, how much can the obama administration really get done on gun safety. >>> also, as president obama prepares for a second term, which way is the democratic party headed? a pragmatic riddle of the road alternative to the gop or will it move sharply to the left? >>> you can't be president of the united states for four more years who ut a couple episodes like this. >> we cannot sustain -- whoops. was that my -- that's all right. all of you know who i am. >> we'll have more of the lighter moments of the first term in the "sideshow." this is "hardball," the place for politics. n for legal matter? maybe you want to incorporate a business. or protect your family with a will or living trust. and you'd like the help of an attorney. at legalzoom a legal plan attorney is available in most states with every personalized document to answer questions. get started at legalzoom.com today. and now you're protected. nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this
the hardline stance, house republicans said friday they would agree to lift the federal government's statuary borrowing limit for three months with a requirement that both chambers of the congress pass a budget in that time to clear the way for negotiations on long-term deficit reduction to add muscle to the efforts to bring democrats to the table, they would include a provision in the debt ceiling legislation saying that lawmakers will not be paid if they do not pass a budget blueprint. was it right to step back from challenging the president over raising the debt ceiling? >> well, i think the house proposal is a step in the right direction. no doubt the senate hasn't done it's job. it's been nearly four years since it's passed a budget. the senate should pass a budget. but it doesn't go nearly far enough. we have a crisis. i just got back last week from afghanistan. and i had multiple servicemen and women clasp me on the arm and say, please do something about the debt and deficit. we're bankrupting the country. that's what the american people are looking for. and to date, politicians have b
